I complained about Fay and how she ruined our vacation.
That was nothing compared to what Gustav has been up to, and what is yet to come in the Gulf states.
Big Brother and the Habitat for Humanity group at his school have plans to spend a week in Mississippi, rebuilding in the Katrina-hit areas.
There may be nothing left for them to build by the time Gustav is through.
Pray for the safety of all those in the path of this very strong, very scary storm.
UPDATE: Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle has a beautiful litany to Our Lady of Prompt Succor, if you’re looking for a specific way to pray for those affected by the storm.
